Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Jon "PearlJammer" Turner's Time is Now!

Jon "PearlJammer" Turner

When online poker started booming, one particular player started making inroads at becoming one of the most successful online poker players around.

Based in Henderson, Nevada, Jon "PearlJammer" Turner has been actively running amok online since the poker boom, and it is no surprise that he has amassed more then $4.4 million in online earnings under the monikers of PearlJammer or PearlJammed.

However his success on the live front hasn't been as damaging as he has only amassed a little over $965,000 in winnings - and don't get us wrong because that is still more then the majority of the poker community - but for Turner, his high expectations and expertise will mean that any result but first here will be a disappointment.

Turner's WSOP career has seen him gather fourteen cashes since 2005 including four final tables. His result here today will see him gather not only his fifteenth cash and fourth final table, but also his highest earning prize following his second-placing at the PCA $5,000 8-max tournament where he collected $178,240.

When the poker world talks about some of the best to not have won a bracelet, Turner's name may not be at the forefront of your brainstorming efforts, but for the quiet guy that goes about his business with little fuss, he is definitely one that should be considered.

Already besting his best WSOP result of fifth, Turner will be out to write the record books of becoming yet another successful online player who has been able to grab a career-defining bracelet like many before him. And for those that secretly picked him as a roughie in their WSOP fantasy teams, they may be cheering the hardest!
